hi guys ..it seems people are criticising kimi for using kers and cutting the chicane in the first corner... and i dont understand why? KERS is an option for everybody and only them and mclaren are running it now.everybdy can run it ..so why criticising him.

I don't think anyone is being critical of Ferrari having KERS itself, but a driver might make a decision to go around everyone on the outside of the track, if he knows he has an extra 80hp in the bank.

Thankfully Charile Whiting has confirmed the above for Monza:

Also, maybe Spa should use those polysterene blocks they have at Monza?

Wider/longer strip of artificial grass to induce a greater loss of speed might help too.

i think richard said it right.. by running wide u will gather all the dirt and its not easy to cope up again..even in monza kimi was pushed to the grass by hamilton and he looses the momentum ..otherwise kimi would have easily passed hamilton..in the first corner

Yeah, if it had nt been for that 2 wheel off road excursion for Kimi, he would ve definitely taken the lead. Both the front row cars started slower than the ones behind them and held them all up, it was nt the fastest of getaways monza has ever seen. LH tried to make his car as wide as possible and was lucky that Kimi did nt go on the inside or he could ve definitely taken the lead.

Umm... Has anybody saved sector time (basicly the whole timing info) from fia.com?
Seems like they turned down all their storage.

PS seems like all the info on past GPs is password protected. Dunno why? :roll:

So what? Raikkonen chanced his arm because he felt he had his best, and only, chance of getting a victory in 2009. Let's face it, it's the only victory Ferrari were going to get.
